The Sphinx next door – The Julianne Moore paradox

As a big fan of Julianne Moore (loved her performance in the very hard role of a suicidal mother abandoning her child for Canada in The Hours and more recently as linguistic professor with Alzheimer’s disease in Still Alice – it still haunts me), I really loved this great behind-the scene article on Julianne Moore.

Her motto (Flaubert’s dictum) says a lot about her

“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work”.

I was not surprised to read that she is

“absolutely neurotic about cleaning”.

Favorite part of the article: when Julianne Moore explains that

she may be an idol to the public but to her 13 y.o. daughter “I’m in idiot, let’s put it that way”.
